Help with auto generated oscsid hidden form input


Recommended Posts

Hi All,


I'm currently modding OSCommerce for my personal use and noticed a strange "bug"/"feature": Sometimes when I'm creating forms whether be it via the inbuilt tep_draw_form function or directly coding <form> tags into the html, hidden oscsid input fields are being generated:


Sample of the anomalous code here:

<form name="currencies" action="http://localhost/catalog/product_info.php?osCsid=c4e435335218e635955d63e64ce0aa06" method="get"><input type="hidden" name="osCsid" value="c4e435335218e635955d63e64ce0aa06" />


I can't seem to find where in the code its generating this hidden field, and as it auto generates sometimes even for forms that i have completely defined in pure HTML.


I've searched these forums and Googled but found no other mention of this problem other than one isolated report of a similar issue on



Thanks in advance,
